Marked by Machinae. Picture included. :)
« on: August 31, 2006, 03:01:19 pm »
I finally took the plunge. I talked about doing this eons ago. I feel like I've enjoyed the fine aspects of Machinae and even Roberts art long enough to consider it a valued part of my life.

I knew gaijin had long since beat me to this, so I spoke with him about this before-hand to get any advice I could. Gaijin seemed to love his and gave me the thumbs up on the idea so, here it be:

My one and only tattoo:

Oi, is this when I get a huge sig-image, start whining about "moar sid" and make nonsensical arguments to no good?

Wow, it looks incredibly excellent :D, I love it! Wish I had the guts to do that...

But imagine... in 30-40 years, when machines rule this planet, Machinae Supremacy music will be mandatory, and you will be king among men ;).

Welcome to one of the most exclusive clubs in the world.

Thank you, good sir =)

And thanks to everyone else for the warm comments. I feel very good about this. Everytime I look down at it I can't help but smile. I was nervous, as it was my first tattoo, but immediately after having it done I knew I had made a good decision (for me anyway) and I couldn't be happier.

As Gaijin warned me though, I liked it alot... and I'm considering my next one already =P

Maybe I can get Robert to design me something unique! :)

Actually to be honest it didn't take long at all. Since I had gaijins blessing, I used that as well as any picture I could find of the trinity logo itself and brought it to the artist. The process he used to do the trace I have no idea, but it only took him about 5 minutes to do and size to my wrist. He made a trace type thing that he put on my wrist, we moved it around for a minute til we found a good spot and he pressed it down and it left a trace on my skin. The tattoo itself probably only took about 5 minutes to outline and 5-10 minutes to fill.

The outline did not hurt really, save for a few spots that stung. The rest fealt good in a sick sorta way. The fill hurt like a mother, though. Especially when it went over the tendin things that go up to your elbow. Ya know, those things that move when you move your fingers =P. As for now, doesnt really hurt at all now - maybe a little sore at worst.

I'm very satisfied with it though ;)

damn.. I want one.

anytime I wear my zip-up machinae hoody I already try to make sure the trinity logo is visible at all times, just so people can see how damn cool it is... for maximal tattoo show-off I think the nose would be best... no one could miss something like that... can you even get a tattoo on your nose?

Heres another picture of it I forgot I had taken ;). Please note that by this time I was half-asleep. It was very late and several hours after I had gotten the tattoo. I had taken the other picture about three hours afterwards, this one I took when I finally got home that night. Ignore the lack of any sense in my face at all. Was terribly tired ;P
